beat
\ ˈbēt  \

Definition of beat
 (Entry 1 of 4)
1: to strike repeatedly:
a: to hit repeatedly so as to inflict pain
He was arrested for beating his wife.
—often used with up

thugs and brutes who beat up their victims without compunction…
— J. H. Plumb
b: to walk on TREAD
beat the pavement looking for work
c: to strike directly against forcefully and repeatedly :dash against
waves beating the shorebeat the door with her fists
d: to flap or thrash at vigorously
a trapped bird beating the air
e: hunting to strike at in order to rouse game
beating a hedgerow
also to range over in or as if in quest of game… 
beat the woods and rouse the bounding prey …
— Matthew Prior
f: to mix by stirring WHIP
beat the eggs
—often used with up

g: to strike repeatedly in order to produce music or a signal
beat a drum

Memes can't beat in any of these ways, they aren't physical.

4. a: OVERCOMEDEFEAT
beat the insurgents in a bloody battle

beating your opponent in chess

They beat us 14 to 3.
also SURPASS
She beat the old record by three seconds.
—often used with out
Someone else beat her out for the job.
bto prevail despite
beat the odds
it beats me how she does it
d(1)FATIGUEEXHAUST
(2)to leave dispirited, irresolute, or hopeless
Years of failure had beaten him down.
beat him out of his inheritance

Only 4b would be a definition that Pro would win with and that is ridiculously unreasonable to assume is what he/she meant by 'beat'. Perhaps 4a was what was meant and that's the point, Memes don't defeat sweat, they are in totally different leagues. Beat sweat at what? Exactly...

I’m tagging Mike as he will have to be the one to fix it. Unmoderated debates does not mean the votes can’t be moderated. From what Mike told me, the votes can be reported and removed. The main difference is that unmoderated de ages are not rated. In other words, your ELO score won’t go down if you lose this debate. I told Mike that the wording was awkward and confusing

if you don't fix this I will make a huge forum protest about it, I promise it will get a crowd roaring.
I agreed to this debate under the notion all votes would be moderated. This doesn't meet the criteria of troll debate that we voted on, which was the strictest definition of the three (option A) I will really take this to the forums if you don't revert all three debates I accepted with the 'moderated' option selected. The rap taste battle is the only one that you can justify.
